Bread and Butter “I Love You” Chant
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam,
Let’s say “I Love You”
As quietly as we can.

Little Heart
I have a little heart, place hand over heart
And it goes thump, thump, thump pat chest three times
It keeps right on beating, When I jump, jump, jump jump three times
I get a special feeling, when I look at you. point to group
It makes me want to give you a hug or two. hug yourself

There’s A Little Wheel A-Turning In My Heart by Laurie Berkner
wheel turning-roll your arms
clap hands
stomping feet
barking dog-woof woof
eyes blinking
sleeping-rest your hands on your head
truck honking-boop your nose
wheel turning-roll your arms
